Children’s Table to Benefit Nutritional Needs of Patients at Children’s of Alabama; Notable Chefs from Southeast to Entertain Guests at Time Inc. Food Studios

BIRMINGHAM – Chefs from around the Southeast will gather soon for Children’s Table, a new event to benefit patients at Children’s of Alabama, the state’s only freestanding pediatric hospital.

On March 3, some of the region’s best chefs will serve guests at the Time Inc. Food Studios (4100 Old Montgomery Highway, Birmingham, 35209). The event is from 7 to 9 p.m. Individual tickets are $80 and $150 per couple. Tickets can be purchased at

The partner chefs were recruited by the editors of Time Inc. Books and Time Inc. magazines Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Southern Living and Coastal Living. The partner chefs are Chris Hastings of Hot and Hot Fish Club and Ovenbird Restaurant; Fuller Goldsmith, winner of Food Network’s Chopped Jr. and Children’s patient; Bill Briand of Fisher’s at Orange Beach Marina; Elizabeth Heiskell of The Farmstead on Woodson Ridge; Rob McDaniel of SpringHouse; James Boyce of Galley & Garden; Ben Vaughn of Root to Tail; Mauricio Papapietro of brick & tin; Abhi Sainju of Abhi Eatery + Bar and Mo:Mo; and Leonardo Maurelli III of The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center.

Guests will be invited to taste different recipes prepared by the partner chefs and go behind the scenes in the Time Inc. Food Studios featuring 28 test kitchens, 13 photo and video studios, a prop and styling studio, and an expansive showcase kitchen and tasting room.

The event will benefit the nutritional needs of patients at Children’s of Alabama. Many patients at Children’s have uniquely restricted diets requiring them to learn everything about the food they eat and many end up developing a strong passion for learning to cook and experiment with recipes. Proceeds from this event will help Children’s assist families in meeting their dietary restrictions and encourage every child’s passion for nutrition.

Children’s Table is presented by Alabama Power with supporting sponsors including Shipt, Regions, Bradley, Brasfield & Gorrie, Nourish Meals, Mainsail Asset Management, Naphcare, Landscape Workshop, Jordan Bickert, Mrs. Stratton’s Salads, Engineering Design Group, Metafitness and Balch & Bingham.

Since 1911, Children’s of Alabama has provided specialized medical care for ill and injured children, offering inpatient and outpatient services throughout central Alabama. Ranked among the best pediatric medical centers in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, Children’s provided care for youngsters from every county in Alabama, 45 other states and six foreign countries last year, representing more than 677,000 outpatient visits and more than 15,000 inpatient admissions.
